Bullhead City Six-Minute Marathon
Bullhead City, Ariz., November 2012
Joy and Vern Gore hosted the “Let’s Breathe” Bullhead City Six-Minute Marathon in Arizona on Nov. 10. The event was a lot of fun with the walk, a raffle, barbeque, clowns and education about pulmonary hypertension by Dr. Rajeev Saggar from St. Joseph Hospital and Medical Center in Phoenix.
The event brought in three new patient members for the local support group and attracted media attention. The Mohave Valley Daily News ran a story about the event and the proclamation they received from the Mayor the day before declaring Nov. as PH Awareness Month. In all, the event raised more than $2,500 for PH research.
